When we moved to Seattle from Tennessee, we pretty much sold everything… and whatever we didn’t sell we packed up in storage… in Tennessee… and we still haven’t been able to go back and get it…
Yeah.. so we have been getting a few things here and there to replace what we sold.
We have been in desperate need of nightstands and lamps because there is no lighting in the bedroom… which can make it difficult to see when you kind find that shirt you KNOW you hung in the closet and so on and so forth.
SO, Ryan and I made a trip to Ikea (YAY! We are SO SO happy to live by Ikea now!) and found a couple of great deals! Read The Rest
I should have posted these a LONG LONG time ago… but WOW! I have been busy!
My life has definitely changed tremendously since Ryan and I moved to Seattle at the end of last year. I went from not working and having PLENTY of time to sit at the computer and write blog posts and such, to working constantly, trying to concentrate on finishing up my Bachelor, finding ways to get involved in Seattle, and getting the privilege to participate in loads of other fun things!
HOWEVER…. I definitely want to continue House to Home…. so I am taking time to share some awesome pics of our apartment that we moved into at the beginning of the year.
These are the “before” pictures, and I will add some of the decorating progress as we continue to add decor!
Here is a view of the apartment building and its proximity to the Space Needle. Read The Rest
I am so in love with our new apartment! We have been here for almost 2 months now and I am still extremely happy! I can’t wait to share some pictures of our new place with you guys, but it will be a few more days before I get them up. Until then…. here is a little sneak peek, which includes my latest purchase! Be checking back soon for a complete reveal of our downtown, high-rise apartment in Seattle!
We are officially residents of Seattle, WA! Ryan and I moved into our apartment on Dec. 30 and were able to enjoy the firework show at the Space Needle from the rooftop of our apartment building.
I love our apartment and I will be posting all kinds of pictures soon!
Now that we are moved in and have our office set up, I will get back to blogging. I’ve missed it the past several months! A new place means new decor and a fresh space to design. =)
I can’t wait to share the pictures of our new place and this beautiful city with you all! Be sure to be checking back as we make this house a home!
Yikes! I hate it that I haven’t been able to blog in a month! I will definitely be glad when I have an office space and a place to blog away!
So a little bit about us…
Ryan and I have officially been in the Seattle area for a month… One whole month already! Craziness! Thankfully, I got a job at David’s Bridal the week after we arrived, and my husband started his new job a little over a week ago! YAY!
We were able to spend a cozy little Thanksgiving with my family. (They weren’t able to get rid of us seeing as how we are still crashing at their place! Haha!)
Now that we are both working and starting to get some cash flow, the next step for us is to get into an apartment. We went out to look at some of the apartments in the Belltown area and found several we liked and several we didn’t… so the hunt is officially on and we are hoping to get into our own place by the end of December or beginning of January.
Once we are there, my blogging will definitely resume! We are starting from scratch as far a furniture and decor goes because we got rid of as much as possible in TN before we headed this way.
One thing that I am excited about is the giant West Elm right downtown! I haven’t been inside of a West Elm yet, but you better believe I will be spending some time in that amazing store!
Anyway… that is all for now. I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving and has a fantastic Christmas! Don’t forget about me, I will be back!!
My parents recently acquired a fifth wheel trailer, and my mom has set out to redecorate the interior of it. For some reason most travel trailers have the worst textiles and and borders in them! They feel a little like grandma at the beach with their neutral colors and palm trees. This fifth wheel was no different, and my mom had to do something about it! Read The Rest
The last two weeks has been a bit of a crazy roller coaster ride for us. My husband and I have had some opportunities open up for us in Seattle, Washington, so we have packed up our house and come to Seattle to see what will become of these opportunities.
We have felt for several years that we would be starting a church in Seattle at some point, and these open doors and a series of revival services in our home church have set the ball rolling. We are so excited about the future, and we may soon be permanent residents in the great city of Seattle!
My posts may be few and far between for the next month or so, then again, I may find lots of inspiring things to share with my readers!
We could definitely use the prayers of each of you during this transitional time in our lives.
